Reaction to the UK Government Office for Science Foresight report “Future of an Ageing Population”

This report from the Scottish Science Advisory Council (SSCA) shows that despite birth rates and net immigration proving lower than the rest of the UK, Scotland’s population is ageing at a faster rate.

It also found that every Scottish council area will see an increase in the proportion of those aged 75 and over between 2012 and 2022.
